Rushmore ( day and night) Crazy Horse Monument, Yellowstone and Jackson Hole WY. Phew! So much fun, so majestic and beautiful. Our tour guide... More

We just had an hour to spend so just walked about looking and taking photos of the life sized statues of past presidents of the USA, one on each street corner. Very interesting and informative. there are lots of restaurants and little shop if required. We enjoyed our visit and recommend if you are in the area.

Lots of shops and places to check out. I liked their square downtown with the free movies. Felt safe. Went to the Firehouse Brewery. Food was good, but they ran out of their special by 6:30 p.m. What restaurant runs out of their dinner special so early in the evening?

My husband and I enjoyed taking pictures of all of the presidents, catching lunch at a local establishment and going antique shopping. Very fun! Would recommend spending at least a couple hours there.

We came downtown to eat at Firehouse Brewing. We decided to wander around a little bit to check out their downtown area. We enjoyed seeing the life size President statues. We also were down on a thursday that had the fest going on with live bands and food. That was enjoyable too. I didn't realize they do this every thursday.... More
